The title for this project ‘Triangulation” is derived from a cartographic technique. The determination of the location of one point is enabled by forming a triangle to it from two other known points. This technique is often used to identify the position of a boat for navigation. We apply this concept to think beyond the fixed relations between two places such as Tokyo and Ho Chi Minh or Japan and Vietnam, but also the ongoing processes of making relationship between any two cities or any two nations.

The point for our triangulation is Goto Island in Nagasaki Prefecture. These multiple points leads to the exploration of long-term, complicated and flexible relationships that cannot be reduced to direct one to one between two nations, two cities and even two universities. This includes consideration not only with human relationships, but also with networks of animals like the hachikuma bird and fishes and plants: it also asks us to rethink about environmental issues in the history. We discuss different layers of exchanges through our research and artworks on the theme of triangulation.
